I am Contacting you based on trust and
confidentiality that will be attached to this deal for the benefit of
both of us. the management and the legal / treasury department of this
electronic transaction banking in a recent meeting, recommended that
the account of Mr. Robert Finke stein, who maintained a life assurance
policy, should be declared dormant and Confisticated hence moving his
unclaimed benefits funds to the treasury according to our banking and
financial law. Recently,i came across a very huge sum of money
belonging to a deceased person (Mr. Robert Finke stein).
He is foreigner, unfortunately he is now late as he was amongst those that was killed in the recent plane crash.
man was our client and has a life assurance policy worth the sum of
forty five million United States dollars (us$45,000,000.00). Right now,
the fund is lying unclaimed in our custody and there is no next of kin
mentioned in his file and there is no how we can reach any of his other
relatives. All efforts made by us to establish contacts with any other
of his relation Has proved abortive and unsuccessful. His life
assurance policy will expire in the next few months from the date of
this letter. just last week we received an instruction from ministry of
social welfare to forward particulars of all unclaimed benefits that
will expire in the next few months. Upon my personal finding on this
matter, i kept this information secret to myself until Now that i am
contacting you. in view of the fact that the deceased customer is a
foreigner (from a different country), it is officially important for
the involvement of a foreigner who will pose as a next-of-kin. i will
use my exalted position in this insurance company to present you as his
next of kin as you can be his relative, friend or cousin and the money
(us$45million) will be safely transferred into your own bank account in
